The Underutilization of GIS and How To Cure It
April 13 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am
When most non-GIS professionals hear “G-I-S”, they think “M-A-P”. Now that GIS is a location intelligence platform, the underutilization of it is critical and career-limiting for GIS professionals. GIS is designed to do more than make maps. It is vitally important that organizations proactively evangelize and market all of the GIS capabilities. This presentation will provide strategies on how to spread the understanding and full value of GIS across your organization.
